http://ubuntuforums.org – I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 with Samba and Webmin. I set up a simple share with permissions 775. Add a user to the share. Sync my Linux users and groups with Samba. I can see the server by name "\\server\test" from windows. I cannot access the share by name. I get a message immediately that says that I do not have permission. When I use "\\192.168.10.10\test" instead I get the prompt to log in and I can log in just fine. The share is working, name resolution in samba is not. Network name resolution seems to be working ... when I ping the server by name in a dos prom (Hardware)
